Susan’s Playlist Oct 13 – 20, 2014 ~ The Unofficial Guide to the Nia Principles: The Upper Extremities

p9 hand tree
The gifts of Principle 9, The Upper Extremities, are many and rich. This week, I’ve enjoyed awakening the muscles in my arms, shoulders and back as we mindfully played with hand movements. Building strength, as my yoga teacher Sara says, with intention. I’ve also enjoyed the pleasure of really touching what I’m touching: sensing the coolness of my water jar, the smoothness of my cat’s fur, the textures on my bike handles, the calloused warmth of my favorite carpenter’s hands. I’d love to hear about what you uncovered this week.

And, an invitation: please join me and a slew of really cool writers at a reading/book launch party on Sunday, November 2 at the Writer’s House in Charlottesville. I’ll be reading an excerpt of one of my essays ~ a first for me ~ but you’ll get readings from experienced folks, too! All the details are here. I’d love to see you there!

You can find all the music from this week’s classes below.  enJOY.

Dance on. Shine on.
